This collection of verse is Housman’s signature work. Mixing the styles of the traditional English ballad and classical verse, the young Housman takes on the growing pains of youth and young love. His verse is noted for its economy of words and directness of statement, pictures of the English countryside, and the fusion of humor and pathos. (from Bartleby.com http://www.bartleby.com/123/)
